Hey. It's Morgan.
This is the part where I struggle to fit my whole life into one paragraph.
I generally describe myself in these situations as “graphic designer // food enthusiast // explorer // attempted diy-er //plant mom // dog mom,” but that seems a little too concise for these purposes. I was born in California but then proceeded to live just about everywhere (including a short stint in Europe), courtesy of my father being a member of the USAF. I attended the Kansas City Art Institute for Graphic Design and then post-grad made the move from Kansas City (Missouri, not Kansas) to Bowling Green, Kentucky to begin working at Studio Calico, now housed under the Inked. Influencer Commerce. parent brand. I love road trips and taking photos (Instagram is my jam). My apartment is 70% plants, 30% furniture. I’m the proud mom of two literal lovebirds—Tiki and Viola—and, as of November ’16, the smartest and most adorable Miniature American Shepherd—Maple.
